TO THE IDITOB. ! Sir,— Allow »• space in year columns to uk if the Ooanty OoodoU has any bylaws, in foroe, . against the stacking of gqpds, s»y, b*g« of ohsff, by the roadside -for days together. Driving home the other evening in the twilight my horse ■hied dangerously in a Tety awkward place, tit a wayside beaoon of this kind. The obftroctlon has now been In that place three weeks. Dead etook as well as five Btook left by the read side should be impounded. Other dangers of travel are the waytlde tethered horee, th.e road scoop, plough, and even harrows, oareletaly left for the night, jaat on the grassy edge of the main road for riders to fall orer. I beg leave to snpgest that bylaws against these dangerous nnisanoe*, for the oauslng of which there is no sort of excuse, be posted At the end of the traffic bridge, and that offenders be made amenable thereto. ' , I am, Viator. (The matter of .which oar correspondent • ■ oomplatne li really a serious one, as we have heard of several narrow eeo»pes lately as the ooneeqdenoe of the oateleßß praotloei to which he refers. The law, however, provides for It very dearly and folly, seotion 3 of the Polioe ..Offence* Aot, 1884, rendering auy person liable to a penalty of not exoeedtng £5 who leaves any inenmbranoe whatever standing or lying opon any pnblio p'aoe or thoroughfare. It would be well If the polioe would bring up one or two t Senders as a caution to others, —Ed.]
